The Two Ways to Order Title and Escrow Online

Two are better than one… (even when it comes to ordering title and escrow online)

We offer two ways to order title and escrow online.

Ordering title and escrow online is not a new thing for real estate professionals in Seattle, Tacoma, and the surrounding communities. But for us at Ticor, allowing our clients to place a title and escrow order online without logging in to myticor.com is a new thing.

In the past, we have required our clients to create an account on our site that stores basic information like what real estate brokerage they are affiliated with, their phone number, email address, and who their representative is at Ticor, etc. In reality, this is the most efficient way for users to use our website. When logged in, placing a title and escrow order is quicker because the order forms will already be populated with the Real Estate agent’s or Loan Officer’s contact information. This saves a bunch of time keying in basic info when it’s time to order title and escrow.

But, we realize that not everyone wants to register on our website and remember a username and password. So we have created a title and escrow order form that is available for users that are not logged in to Ticor’s website.  There are a few required fields that are necessary for us to identify who is placing the order of course.  But the rest of the form has the same familiar fields that our loyal clients are accustomed to.

Thanks for the orders!

Ticor Title

Have you checked your title company’s claims reserve lately?

Have you ever heard anyone say, “You don’t need insurance until you need it? ” It sounds a bit obvious and silly, but it’s true. Title insurance is one of those things that is sometimes looked at (and soon forgotten) as just a line item on the HUD 1 Settlement Statement. Many people don’t realize just how valuable a title insurance policy can be until it’s time to file a claim on what is most likely their biggest asset, the family home.

We won’t go into any horror stories today ( and how title insurance saved the property owner). There’s one point we want to make. When shopping for a title company for your next real estate transaction, please consider the claims reserve (or claims paying ability) of your title company. If by chance you choose a title insurance company that does not have a healthy claims reserve, you may find yourself in a precarious position should they encounter a surge in claims.

Ticor Title is backed by our nation’s largest claims reserve at $2.7 Billion dollars. It’s hard for most people to even imagine how much money that is. But it suffices to say that insuring the title of your property with Ticor is a smart move. Rest assured.

We’ve got you covered!
